Got to be a reason I managed to avoid seeing this thing the past 20 years. I would expect more from Walter Hill but this movie falls way short of it's overrated status as "one of the best." As far as the James/Younger sagas goes this is one of the worst IMO. The Keach boys with their 'dead eyes' bring absolutely no energy whatsoever to the part of Jesse and Frank James. The movie suffers from terrible casting more than anything else, but the Keach brothers did own the script. Sort of like buying your own baseball team and inserting yourself in the lineup at shortstop. It's a decent story but it just fails to deliver and you'll have a hard time mustering any sympathy for the 'heroes' of this turkey. However, David Carradine is standout as Cole Younger. His knifefight with James Remar is the clear highlight of the film, followed only by the hilarious dialogue with his 'consort' Belle Starr. Pretty funny stuff. A little too reminiscent of the highly overrated Wild Bunch where the focus on graphic violence and airborne blood wins out over content. Two bullets, one for each of the Keach boys.
